I moaned earlier on about someone having a go at my Fleabay account, well I was at lunch sorting through emails and there's one from Amazon... a one time password request was mad on my account...
Hmmm time to talk to someone...
I never use my assigned work laptop for anything other than work, and code project, news sites, etc. I don't do social media, and I never, ever check my email using it. I have been following that policy since around 2012 when I adopted it.
I do get my email via the cell phone though, which is normally how I do that anywhere I am at. I am on a VPN so security and anonymity is slightly elevated than not.
So I work for Client X.
Client X works with third party A to do their system administration.
They also have a Microsoft Dynamics application which is managed by third party B.
I'm in a project with third party C who does the communication with party B (which is basically everything this party does...).
So now I need a file sync to get files from Dynamics into Azure.
We did this a few months ago, so I called A and they somehow installed it on the Domain Controller
So we need to change that now, but party A knows nothing about Dynamics and they want black on white that they can install it on the server that's running Dynamics.
But none of us know anyone at party B and getting party C into this would mean there are two additional people between B and me
Meanwhile, Client X just wants us to fix this, but has no idea what everyone is up to.
I currently have someone on site (party D, if you like), and party A has two people on site.
With the application manager and the IT manager you'd think we should be able to do something today...
My guess is that once we know which server is the right one we need to install updates in order to install the Azure File Sync, which requires a restart, which isn't possible during business hours.
That would mean they'd have to restart the server tonight and we'll have to continue this on another day when they're on site again.
This has been going on for two weeks now. It seems I'm finally getting my DNS records today though.[^]
Installing the file sync and adding the DNS records should be less than an hour work...
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Well, it seems it worked as this guy really did his best to make it work this time and it seems the file sync is fixed.
The DNS records have to be entered by yet another party, but the request is on its way, so thumbs crossed
Should I talk about one of my project where project management is in asia, design is located in 2 different european countries, production of the different parts of the system in 3 other different european countries, assembly inhouse in latin america, and final assembly of the product in the target customer product in south africa. And we are talking about mechanical parts, so this includes shipping, etc...
